‘I was no longer an adulteress to be stoned, but an object employed in a rite of love. I desired that they would spit at me more with thicker viscosities.’
- Jean Genet in Miracle of the Rose
The Balkaen Game is an installation/arcade game by dance artist Joseph Mercier (http://www.josephmercier.com) in which the audience is given three attempts to spit into the mouth of a naked man.
The game premiered at Act Art 8 in July 2010 and is now available for future programming.
